Review: To start off, this is a very high quality mask. When they say it's a pro-level goggle system, it really shows. The lenses are very high quality, come in a range of styles, and have not fogged up on me at all.

Now, I'm just gonna expand on my strengths and weaknesses;

Excellent Field-of-View;
Compared to all other masks, this one doesn't obstruct at all in the peripherals. The only problem I find is that the nose part of the mask obstructs the lower centre of my field of view, just a little bit.

Comes In Tons of Colours;
Seriously, every colour and trim. From yellow to red to blue and white and black and silver and gray. I personally got mine in Blue Digital, and it even comes in Urban Digital and Army Combat Uniform (ACU). Awesome.

Easy to Clean;
Okay, so my first pair of goggles was the JT nForcers. They're pretty decent, but cleaning them was easily the biggest pain I've ever had to deal with. Getting the lens out took hours the first time, and still takes me a good half hour. And don't even get me started on putting them back in. These goggles, however, are out, cleaned and back in within 5 minutes. The quick release system is absolutely genius, and pretty much idiot-proof.

Lots of Goodies;
This buy comes PACKED with goods. Not only is there the regular goggle system, but it also comes with pre-cut soft ears, two lenses (one clear thermal-cured, the other smoke-coloured dual-pane thermal), interchangeable visor and brow shield, microfibre bag for the uninstalled lens, and a larger microfibre bag for the goggles themselves. The microfibre bags also double as cloths for cleaning. Like I said, absolutely packed with goods.

Now, onto the minor downfalls;

Price;
The mask is just a little bit steep at $100-$129 Canadian (depending on the colour and where you buy it), but you fully get what you pay for. With all the goodies, and the extremely high quality of this mask, it's well worth it. However, I bought mine from a friend who won it in a tournament for $50. Definitely a good deal.

Little Retainer Clips;
This one is a little hard to explain. Basically, the process for taking the goggles off requires you to twist the soft ears 90 degrees and then pulling them away. To stop the ears from twisting during use, there are these tiny black clips that fit into the space. however, these clips are TINY, and very easily to lose. Also, they are a little flimsy, and can break if you pull them out the wrong way. But, alas, this is not a huge problem, as they aren't even really necessary to stop the ears from twisting.

Visor / Brow Shield is Difficult to Install;
The process of installing the visor or brow shield requires you to jam these tabs into slots on the top of the mask. This wouldn't be all that difficult, but since they are made of the same flexible material the mask is, you have to bend, push and jam the tabs into place. It can be done, it just takes some effort.
Conclusion: Overall, this is by far, the best mask I have ever used. The overall simplicity, durability, ruggedness, and range of colours of the mask makes this an absolute gem. I would give it a 9.5, due to the minor issues, but since half-ratings aren't allowed, I'm giving it a full 10. Highly recommended.
